Here is my attempt to create some old school house music. I am sick and tired of "deep house" because it can sometimes be very depressing to listen to (always made in minor), so I wanted to go back in time and create something that is more in line with the original house music. I hope some of you like it.

Using:
RT1931: Synth bass
RT1942: Synth rythm
RealDrums: Eurodance (in many variations)
RT1944: Synth Rythm
... and 3 different loops.

Will

Will,

This sounds really good.

The drums are surprisingly good for the style. The swirling synth is cool. You definitely capture the "old school house" sound.

Excellent mix. Well done.

Add a few female vocal loops and you could have a hit!...

Will,
Upbeat and pulsing - I like the percussion and spacey synth sounds. Definitely invites dancing!

I don't listen to a lot of house music so I'm probably not the best judge but it sounds really good to me....dynamic, exciting, and well mixed!! Take care. Greg

It is what it says on the box.
A little vocal melody on top as suggested would really ice the cake.

Floyd, Robert, Greg and rayc - thank you very much for listening to my track. I appreciate it!

@Floyd
I actually tried to include some loops with female stuff, but it sounded SO cliched that I removed it again smile

As infectious as ebola. Great syncopated rhythm and a cool vibe.

Hi Tangmo,

I take it as a compliment although I certainly don't hope it is as infectious as ebola... grin

This is bumpin'! Very much a throw back to 90s house music. Very cheerful and upbeat. Well done Will!

Will, this sounds excellent to me! There is some wonderful syncopation going on in this track with the high hat and it really makes this one pop! It sounds like you really have a good handle on your genre! Thanks, Torrey

Dear Mr. Josef...

Man, this is solid, compulsively danceable "house" music! I was jammin' in my seat as I listened to it, once, twice, three, and now, four times. It's an energetic, uplifting track that rocks the soul and blows the clouds from the sky so the sun can shine down. It inspired me to sing along with some jazzistic scatting, too.

You definitely achieved your goal of turning the often-times downbeat feel of minor-keyed house music into a "major" celebration of upbeat musical sound.

Sincerely,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage")

Will,

You've certainly captured the feel you set out to achieve. This sounds pretty good to me. I'm not that experienced in house music (old or new) but the pulsing rhythm definitely makes the feet feel like they want to get up and get moving!

Regards,
Noel

Really nice work Will smile Definitely has that 90's house music vibe. Certainly unique for the showcase, and a fine example of how versatile Band-in-a-Box really can be. Love the groove, and those swirling synths added a ton of nice texture.

Great job and thanks for sharing!

Well done with this track. So interesting to hear BIAB used in a more commercial/pop setting. Just need to add some vocals I think. Great work

Thank you very much for listening, funkycornwall. Yes, the track would probably be better with some vocals. I understand that now after reading all the comments (which I appreciate a lot).

Thanks again,
Will

Hey Will, I left this kind of music behind way along time ago but I have to say that the foot tapping is still there. Well done. I brought images of a fashion show runway in progress.

Hi Mike B.

Reading your post immediately got me thinking of "Fashion channel" which I watched a lot when I was working in Vietnam and Thailand. It also made me realize that I have to up my game smirk

Thanks for listening,
Will
